Application and Admission

Acceptance into the Master of Science in Applied Anatomy program is based on undergraduate and/or graduate transcripts and GPAs, results of comprehensive examinations (GRE, MCAT or DAT), the student’s personal statement of career goals, and letters of recommendation. Acceptance requires a bachelor's degree from an accredited institution. The Master of Science in Applied Anatomy degree can be obtained as a joint degree by qualified individuals participating in other programs at CWRU, such as medical students seeking the MD and MS degrees jointly. All applications must be made through the Department of Anatomy and the School of Graduate Studies. Students can begin their coursework either in the fall or spring semester.

Medical students can apply to the Department of Anatomy graduate program after beginning medical school. For acceptance into the joint degree program, the medical student must present a letter from their Associate (‘Society’) Dean of Student Affairs of the School of Medicine that documents his/her good academic standing in the medical curriculum, in addition to submitting the graduate program application. Students accepted into the program can begin their graduate studies in the first or second semester of medical school and complete the MS degree elective requirements (Surgical Anatomy course) during their fourth year.
